an afghan police uniform. the latest in the series of green on blue insider attacks and our pentagon correspondent barbara starr joins us live with details on that. good morning. how unusual is this? >> well, alana, sadly this is a story we've report sod often during the year, haven't we? the details on this attack are different in one respect. as far as we know this is a case where a woman, an afghan woman in a police uniform conducted this shooting and killing. a contractor in cab uhl police headquarters. the nato alliance has already announced the incident but not said the nationality officially of the contractor involved. this typically does not happen where the perpetrator is a woman. they are going to have to determine, of course, if she really was an afghan police officer or perhaps the uniform was stolen or she somehow came into possession of it. a continuing issue in afghanistan the past several months. they are trying to work on it. keep an eye on things more closely. be aware when people who want to conduct these acts have basically infiltrated into a safe area, but again,

at the pentagon. barbara, there's outrage from a lot of folks about this. the nra came out pretty strong about arming the schools. is there any kind of middle ground here from those who say, look, we want to stop gun violence, but there has to be a better way to protect the children? >> the nra didn't double down on what it wants, which is a focus on armed security personnel in schools. what other people say, suzanne, is, look, that's not a new idea. school districts have grappled with security for years, and some have gone this way. even in the 1999 terrible massacre at columbine high school in colorado, there was an armed security person on the school grounds at that time. it helped a little bit, but obviously, not able to stop what happened there. the people who want to see another way to go, many in congress are talking about a package of solutions. some new measures on gun control. some new measures on high-powered magazines. taking another look the at school safety. taking a look at how this country deals with with those who are mentally ill. this package of solutions they say that the p
